  •  Most European countries (5+ / 0-)

    are far more open to short-term worker's permits than here.

    Which gives you exposure to a country.

    And if you get accepted by any European nation or Commonwealth country, you get accepted by all.

    •  good idea for college students (0+ / 0-)

      try it as an average Joe, and i mean an average Joe with a college degree and has been told by all his friends and family he is special.  I think you are mistaken if you think EU countries offer short term workers permits to Americans in a casual way.  I know quite a bit about the subject, and will gladly give you advice if you are interested.

      I don't think the diary is about short term workers permits or as another said "living abroad for a while".  I think the author would back me up on this.

      •  I don't pretend it is easy to get work permission (4+ / 0-)

        I have many friends from many places and know barriers can be high. Unless of course you are wealthy -- that'll swing the doors wide for you anywhere. I'm a realist, not an idealist.

        I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires. - Susan B. Anthony

          When they look forward to what they want to work in when they have gone through their education, point them towards areas where the skills are readily transferable. A doctor or nurse would find a job abroad far more easily than a lawyer (unless with specialism in international law). Being bilingual could lead them into translation work or in an office dealing with trade with the other nation where knowing the language and traditions would give the company an advantage.  Just a few examples but I hope the idea helps.

          "Come to Sochi, visit the gay clubs and play with the bears" - NOT a Russian advertising slogan.
